Where is the running game?

Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

we've had more than our share of horrible calls - I do not believe that refs intentionally make bad calls against teams or in favor of players
Hopefully Snyder has learned from his mistakes and this franchise is back on track to gaining some respectability
this is going to be an interesting second half to the season

Thats cool guys...

Sometimes I see the NFL as rather scripted or bias to certain teams. Money rules the world, I refuse to be so naive to think these deep pocket men who own these teams have zero influence.

Its not always blatant.. But I do think Breezy talks his way out of the flag Kirk got by explaining the issue.
There is no right vs wrong nor cut and dry- cuz opinions aren't facts. Just like the "tuck rule" wasn't created when the Brown's needed it to win... But when it saved the GOAT and killed the Raiders hopes.

I'm glad you think all is equal and fair across the league, maybe the browns will win the SB next year eh?

highly unlikely but with refs making bad calls, who knows - you might be onto something - don't bet the house but a token bet couldn't hurt

With old man Dhall in the backfield, and lacking at least 2 starting LBs a couple DTs and our NT... Not to mention any other DB churn, ie Nicholson at S

Please! We make that 3rd and a foot @ 2:00, we can take a knee in the victory formation. No excuse for that failure.

I think Gruden has been sticking with the run more than ever this year. I thought McVay was a lil pass happy.

with a QB like Cousins and the weapons we had last season I would be pass happy too

Sean McVay is showing that he's one of the best offensive play callers in the NFL

Another terrible game, another failed rushing performance. Barely 50 yards in total against Dallas.

KC, or any other QB, cannot win when the game plan does not include any semblance of a running game.

Can someone reinstate MartyBall? I actually favor "three-yards and a cloud of dust" over this dink and dunk offense
that never seems to have control of anything.

The running game is with other football teams, not ours. #-o

The Redskins of recent years are a lot more focused on the passing game than the run game AND Cousins is regarded as one of the best in the NFL at the play action passing game - this is who we are

Just to keep this in the same thread:

We ran an impressive 31 total yards vs the Cards.

That should be a new low for a Redskin victory. As some have said all season long: take Cousins out of the equation and we are
a terrible team, but at the same time, Gruden has built the team around KC, so it's a no-win situation: everything
centers around the QB's performance...and luck, as we saw today vs Arizona.

^^ ... you're just now realizing that :shock: ... this franchise has been all about luck since 1999

we have had some good coaching and some good players but we have not had anyone making decisions based on anything that gives this franchise a chance to be consistently competitive - the owner seems fixated on making sure that he gets all the credit for any 'success'

we have had some good coaches and players but unfortunately Snyder keeps interfering with these guys and does not seem to be able to just let them do their jobs and stay out of the way like so many other franchises do

we're coming up on the off season again and again we have no plan and nobody in charge who really knows what they're doing

The cracks are showing. Let's keep it at that.

Some degree of decency (2012, 2015) can make me forget the terrible planning mistakes during the mast decade. Now, they are painfully obvious.

An NFL franchise that is managed even a little does not need luck to win the majority of their games - we have nobody in charge and the results are evident - we do not determine the outcome of games we hope we get lucky
